Madrid, Teatro Real, L’Incoronazione di Poppea – Seneca, William Christie, Pier Luigi Pizzi:
“In a generally splendid cast…Antonio Abete deployed his sonorous, virile bass to create a splendid version of Seneca, the pompous philosopher who ends up achieving supreme dignity through a brave death.” Opera News Magazine, Roberto Herrscher . http://www.operanews.com/Opera_News_Magazine/2010/9/Review/MADRID__L_Incoronazine_di_Poppea.html
Cleveland, The Cleveland Orchestra, Così fan tutte – Don Alfonso, Zurich Opera production, conductor Franz Welser-Möst :
“As the catalyst Don Alfonso, Antonio Abete makes the ideal bete-noire, a thoroughly jaded jerk. But behind his dark glasses, the outward symbol of his philosophical blindness, lies a colorful, penetrating bass-baritone.” The Plain Dealer, Thursday, March 4, 2010 By Zachary Lewis Link to this article: http://www.cleveland.com/musicdance/index.ssf/2010/03/post_34.html
“The philosopher Don Alfonso (otherwise known as a rabble-rouser) wonderfully enacted by bass-baritone Antonio Abete” Cool Cleveland.
